For select purchases made using Apple Pay over the next week, Apple will donate $1 to (RED). The charity, which Apple has long had a partnership with, raises funds for HIV/AIDs program in sub-Saharan Africa.
Apple missed a golden opportunity to bust out a RED iPhone X to go with the (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus based on the latest mockups from our favorite Apple concept artist.
Martin Hajek came out with some renderings of what the iPhone X would look like with a red coat of paint and it’s absolutely stunning.
Take a look:
Despite poor demand for iPhone X, Apple seemingly forgot about its flagship smartphone when designing the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8. This gorgeous concept video below gives us a taste of what could have been — and proves there should be a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X in the future.
Apple’s fancy new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8, now available to preorder for delivery next Friday, ships with an exclusive new wallpaper. It’s already available to download, which means you can enjoy it on any iPhone without having to fork out $700 for a new one.
Apple is now accepting preorders for its new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Prices start at $699, and both devices are scheduled to start arriving on Friday, April 13.
Apple’s new (PRODUCT)RED leather folio case for iPhone X, priced at $99, is also available to order now.
You won’t find a special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X in the Apple store alongside the new iPhone 8 tomorrow, unfortunately — but if you want to support a good cause, you can get your hands on one of Apple’s new RED leather folio cases.
Apple is ready to go red for World AIDS Day.
More than 400 Apple Stores around the world will sport red logos next week, while every Apple Pay transaction will result in a donation to the Global Fund. Apple will also promote apps and games that support (RED).
Think the iPhone 8’s rumored $1,000 price tag is too cheap for your blood?
Don’t worry. RED — makers of the EPIC camera — have got you covered with an all-new Android phone that costs upward of $1,500.
Only problem is you’ll have to wait until 2018 to get your fingers on it.
We couldn’t wait to get our hands on a new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and rip it out of its slick package. Check out our red iPhone unboxing video below to see what’s inside and get our first impressions of Apple’s latest device.
Sure, it looks spectacular, and a portion of your purchase goes to a good cause. It’s also packing Apple’s latest iPhone hardware — but that hardware is six months old now, and when September rolls around, it’s going to be old news.
Join us in this week’s Friday Night Fight as we discuss whether the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone — and iPhone 7 in general — is still worth your hard-earned cash.
Apple’s “surprise” announcement of new products and software wasn’t all that surprising if you’ve been keeping up with the latest rumors.
Today’s updates were practically announced yesterday when the company said its store would be down in the morning for “maintenance.” Despite all the rumors of new iPads and RED iPhones that have been out for weeks, Apple still managed to sneak in a few surprises that were both good and bad.
We’re eagerly awaiting Apple’s rumored April keynote, but here’s the biggest, most surprising news from today’s teaser.
After years of waiting, Apple is finally giving us a new iPhone color option.
The company today unveiled a special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which will be available to order at 8:01 a.m. Pacific on Friday, March 24.
Apple will debut a new red variant of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at a media event in March, a new report claims, citing a Barclays analyst.
The report also claims the March event will see Apple introduce a new iPad Pro lineup, as well as a new Apple Watch band and an added iPhone SE storage option.
That Apple’s next iPhone may contain few surprises does not surprise fans growing impatient for game-changing innovation.
The next iPhone may have them seeing red.
Red is reportedly set to join the color lineup of Apple’s 2017 iPhones, according to the Japanese Apple news blog Macotakara.

Chinese New Year is just a few weeks away and the Apple Watch is gearing up to celebrate the occasion with two new color options that will add a lot of red (and hopefully some good luck) to your wrist.
Apple’s World AIDS week campaign has earned a big donation for Bono’s Product RED charity this month. The holiday project RED promotions that ran during two of the busiest shopping days of the year – Black Friday until Cyber Monday – raised more than $20 million, according to an internal email obtained by Recode.
Tim Cook sent employees an email revealing that along with raising another $20 million, the iPhone maker has donated over $100 million for Product RED to fight AIDS in Africa.
Earlier this week, Bono blasted Apple for “modesty run amok” in regards to the company’s charity work.
Claiming that Apple was like a secretive cult, he said that Apple didn’t do enough to broadcast its work for the Global Fund as part of Product (RED). Apple has raised $75 million for the charity since 2006.
Bono’s tongue was obviously in cheek, but (RED) has now released a statement, clarifying that Bono was expressing “faux outrage” and he was just making a joke.
Bono is a tireless promoter of his global AIDs and HIV nonprofit, (RED), but according to the U2 frontman (and, more ignobly, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark composer), Apple’s dropping the ball when it comes to charity: not in regards to giving enough money to charity, but in regards to promoting how much charitable work it does as a company.
I like this Hammerhead Lightning cable for two reasons: it’s red, and the cable is flat. Actually, make that three reasons – it’s called the Hammerhead, like the frikkin shark.
Tony Fadell, father of the original iPod and creator of the Nest home thermostat, sparked all kinds of speculation earlier this week after appearing in photos posted to Twitter alongside Jony Ive’s (RED) Mac Pro and rose gold Earpods, which were recently sold at a Sotheby’s charity auction for just under $1.5 million.
It seemed as though Fadell has snapped up both items himself, but he has today confirmed that he is the owner of neither.
Apple Design Genius, Jony Ive and famed designer Marc Newson have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind collection of items to be auctioned off for Bono’s Project (RED). Not only have the pair collected a number of objects for the auction that are fantastic in their own right, but they’ve also teamed up to create some truly lustworthy products like the gorgeous Leica M, a super-minimalist aluminum desk and this $60k red Mac Pro.
The auction is set to take place on November 23rd and even though mere mortals like us can only dream of having enough cash to drop 70 large on a “Zvezda” Soviet Cosmonaut Suit – all in the good name of fighting AIDS and Tuberculosis of course – Sotheby’s has published a video of Jony and Marc discussing why they chose the items in their collection.
Short answer, via Jony: “The criteria that we both had was that we both just wanted to own each one really badly.”
Here’s the video:
When you spend thousands of dollars on a new Mac, you don’t want to take it home and put it on anything — you want the desk beneath to look just as good. So, wouldn’t it be awesome if the Mac’s designer, Jony Ive, designed the perfect desk to accompany it.
Well, he has — but you won’t be able to purchase it. Like the special edition Ive-designed Project (RED) Leica unveiled earlier this week, the solid aluminum (RED) Desk is a one-off created by Ive and industrial designer Marc Newson for a charity auction. And it’s likely to fetch a fortune.
U2 frontman and AIDS activist, Bono was on hand at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting where he announced that his Product (RED) partner Apple has raised over $65 million for the charity organization.

Sir Jony Ive and famed designer Marc Newson have teamed up with Bono to a mega-auction of fancy master-pieces of design that will be sold to benefit (RED). Among the list of items up for grabs is a custom pair of Apple EarPods made of solid rose gold.
Jony and Marc actually did all the curation of the collection themselves over the past year, as well as collaborating on two custom made items – a Leica Digital Rangefinder Camera, and an aluminum desk produced by Neal Feay Studios. A total of 40 items will be auctioned off, including pieces from space travel, lighting, contemporary art and rare automobiles.
Here’s what Jony had to say about his contribution:
